  • “Come Together” and join us for the 46th Greater Andover Days Festival, presented by Williams Ace Hardware, Sept. 26-29, 2013 in Andover Central Park.
    This year’s theme is “Come Together” to celebrate the first year for GAD, 1967.
    Some highlights:
    • A new musical act, The AJ McCausland Band, will headline GAD’s most popular event, the Tailgate Party, sponsored by the Collision Center of Andover/Andover Towing & Recovery presented by the Andover Chamber of Commerce. The event will have contests for Best Food and Best Tailgate Experience, hosted by 97.1 BobFM (with special guest Cathy Carrier).
    • Saturday morning, join us for the Equity Bank Parade with Dusty Hayes from 105.3 The Buzz, featuring for the first time ever a performance area at Central and Andover Rd.
    • Also returning this year will be the Capitol Federal/Laham Development Saturday night Concert in the Park with entertainment by Big Fat Fun and the amazing Andover State Bank fireworks display.
